In the 3D method, we summed the number of chloroplasts per volume as estimated by the disector method in each cross-section and divided it by the sum of the estimated number of cells in each cross-section. There are more in the palisade cells than in the spongy mesophyll. Mesophyll cells contain chloroplasts and have an irregular shape with lobed anticlinal cell walls and are prolonged in the direction perpendicular to the needle surface (Fig. In palisade cells kept under dim white light (15 µmol m −2 s −1), actin signals were mainly observed like a meshwork surrounding each chloroplast . GR Beneath the palisade mesophyll are the spongy mesophyll cells, irregularly-shaped cells that having many intercellular spaces to allow the passage of gases, such as the intake of carbon dioxide for photosynthesis to take place. . JE J Chloroplast counting in separated mesophyll cells after leaf maceration (e.g. In order to get unbiased results, it is also important to apply unbiased sampling of locations within the leaf where the measurement is performed. Wang In contrast, spongy parenchyma is the lower mesophyll layer of spherical or ovoid cells with few chloroplasts and very prominent intercellular air spaces. 2C) on the images captured by a 10× objective, while the size of the rectangles was set equal to the size of the field of view and the distance between the rectangles was set to capture on average 24 stacks of optical sections per spruce needle. B (This figure is available in colour at JXB online. JL In simpler terms, they are known as leaf cells. DC Wang JJ In this scheme, eight chloroplasts are counted (ticked) and six chloroplasts are not counted (crossed). L Doyle Lhotáková WW (2000). (H) Side view of the model from (F) with six lines indicating planes of cross-sections. . XX S LV The exclusion planes in this scheme are represented by the dark planes and the transparent front plane (all bordered by a full line): the bottom KLMN (so-called look-up plane), KNRO, KLPO, and half-planes PLS and RNT. Mamushina The mesophyll layer is divided into palisade and spongy layers. Kubínová Login . Particles are labelled according to the label of the probe they are counted in. Kubínová Zubkova Acquired values were compared using statistical analysis (paired t-test) in NCSS 2000 program (Number Cruncher Statistical Systems, Kaysville, Utah, USA). Applying the maceration method to coniferous needles is problematic or even impossible, as shown in our study, as they contain phenolic compounds and lignin in cell walls (Fig. Chaly J The number of chloroplasts per mesophyll cell can be calculated by: Instead of direct counting of N, it could be estimated by estimations of densities : obtained by stereological methods. RD Chloroplasts labelled by crosses are not counted by any of the three probes shown here, but they would be unambiguously sampled by adjacent hypothetical probes. The mesophyll (in Greek,Mesos- middle;phyllo-leaf) is presented between the lower and upper epidermis and composed of palisade and spongy cell layers in chloroplasts. Lamppa The height of the disector probe was 10 μm, placed in the middle of captured stacks, i.e. Pokorný K For mesophyll cell counting, 30 µm thick stacks comprising 16 serial optical sections 2 µm apart were acquired by using a plan apochromatic 20× water-immersion objective (NA 0.7) with resolution 2048×2048 pixels (750×750 µm) (Fig. Nevertheless, sampling design is crucial for yielding unbiased results, as anatomical gradients within a leaf blade were demonstrated also for the number of chloroplasts per cell (Dean and Leech, 1982). The cells that form palisade tissue are the two upper layers of mesophyll cells, the cells that contain many chloroplasts to maximise photosynthesis. MJ Fujita O Counting chloroplast profiles in 2D yielded values of chloroplast number per cell that were 10 times underestimated in comparison with the mean number of chloroplasts estimated by the unbiased disector method in 3D. T They are a type of ground tissue that's actually found as two distinct types in the leaves. Wolyn . MC . Fewer chloroplasts in the spongy mesophyll because most of the light energy is absorbed by the chloroplasts of the palisade mesophyll. Teng I 3). J Chloroplast number per cell is a frequently examined quantitative anatomical parameter, often estimated by counting chloroplast profiles in two-dimensional (2D) sections of mesophyll cells. M . Mettler From these images, the areas of needle cross-sections and the proportions of mesophyll were estimated by the point counting method (Weibel, 1979) using the Ellipse Point Grid software module (Fig. A double disector (Gundersen, 1986) was used: the probe was used in both directions, i.e. N Palisade cells are found in the mesophyll of a leaf and their main function is the absorption of light so that photosynthesis can take place. (G) 3D reconstruction of the mesophyll cell with chloroplasts from a stack of optical sections from confocal microscopy using Ellipse software. Comparing practical measurements of mesophyll cells, calculations performed in a 3D model of a cell with chloroplasts as well as a theoretical analysis showed that the 2D approach yielded biased results, while the underestimation could be up to 10-fold. D . The spongy mesophyll is found towards the lower epidermis. Chloroplasts are important organelles of plant photosynthesizing cells as loci where the photosynthetic processes take place. Itoh Niinemets 0, tip; z, position of the first cross-section: a random integer from an interval 0–5 was chosen using a table of random numbers; this number determined the position of the first cross-section (z) in the needle (0 corresponded to 0.5mm from the tip and 1 corresponded to 1mm, up to 5, which corresponded to 3mm from the tip), T=3mm (the interval between subsequent cross-sections). B B It should be stressed that profiles of particles in a 2D section of a specimen do not represent an unbiased sample of the particles, as the larger particles are sampled (i.e. 5) do not correspond to in vivo chloroplast arrangement; however, they illustrate well the size of Norway spruce mesophyll cells, their variable and irregular shape, as well as the number and size of chloroplasts within a cell.

Leech Effect of autopolyploidy in sugar beets, Ploidy effects in isogenic populations of alfalfa. The mean number of chloroplasts per mesophyll cell in Norway spruce needle estimated by 3D disector was 209.65±17.44 (mean±SE) (open column), and by profile counting in 2D (filled column) was 20.92±1.32. Kudoh MV Wang Gundersen . Bubolo Well-established methods for estimation of the chloroplast number per cell previously used in two-dimensional (2D) space are based on: (i) counting chloroplasts in stomatal guard cells in epidermal peels, (ii) determining the number of chloroplasts in flattened mesophyll cells after maceration, and (iii) counting profiles of chloroplasts in leaf sections. Chloroplasts lying within this block or intersecting its planes are counted, except those intersecting the exclusion planes.

Lister 2012 Feb158(2):905-16. doi: 10.1104/pp.111.186957. . WT EJ R For an unbiased estimation of the number of particles in 3D with no assumption about particle shape and size, the optical disector method based on 3D unbiased sampling probe was developed (Sterio, 1984; Gundersen, 1986). (F) Face view of a model of a mesophyll cell with 210 chloroplasts made in Cortona 3D software. Srinivasa Reddy Chloroplasts are important organelles of plant photosynthesizing cells as loci where the photosynthetic processes take place. K Stettler Dean JanouÅ¡ G We compared 2D and 3D approaches to chloroplast counting from different points of view: (i) in practical measurements of mesophyll cells of Norway spruce needles, (ii) in a 3D model of a mesophyll cell with chloroplasts, and (iii) using a theoretical analysis. The average number of chloroplasts per mesophyll cell estimated by profile counting in 2D was 20.92±1.32, while the average number of chloroplasts estimated by the disector probe in 3D was 10 times higher, i.e. . The maceration process was further adapted and applied to Arabidopsis thaliana L. and counting was accomplished after chloroplast thresholding using an image analysis program (Pyke and Leech, 1991; Marrison et al., 1999; Stettler et al., 2009). GK Albrechtová Wang the number of chloroplasts per cell, also exist in dependence on distance of a leaf from the root system (Possingham and Saurer, 1969). Zellnig 2F, Supplementary Videos S1 and Supplementary Data, at JXB online). U 6). Chloroplasts are also found in photosynthetic tissues that do not appear green, such as the brown blades of giant kelp or the red leaves of certain plants. at first, cells were counted by the disector with the reference plane and look-up planes in the positions shown in Fig. Seralathan For full access to this pdf, sign in to an existing account, or purchase an annual subscription. Chloroplast counting using the virtual 3D disector probe. . Hortensteiner Tymms Lin T Kalina T DT Under this condition, 85% of the palisade cells exhibited such a … (This figure is available in colour at JXBV online.). . 3A, and then additional cells were counted by the disector with the reference plane set to the position of the former look-up plane and vice versa. Y KL Testillano Anderson Counting chloroplasts in cells directly during focusing through the specimen using conventional light microscopy (Ellis and Leech, 1985; Bockers et al., 1997) can be applied if entire cells can be focused through and the chloroplasts are sparsely distributed in cells; however, chloroplasts usually tend to be densely packed along the cytoplasmic membrane. Having no chloroplasts in the spongy mesophyll creates more space for light to be absorbed. The palisade layer of cells is tightly packed, like a brick wall, and contains the greatest concentration of chloroplasts in the leaf. Moreover, it is known that anatomical parameters often exhibit gradients along the leaf blade (e.g. The latter approach was used for determining the chloroplast number per stomatal guard cell in leaves of potato S. tuberosum L. (Mozafari et al., 1997), A. thaliana L. (Dinkins et al., 2001), Eucalyptus saligna Sm. 2B). They are vertically elongated, a different shape from the spongy mesophyll cells beneath them. BN Takio 2. L YL The images were captured during 2009 and analysed during 2009–2012. J Bendich Wang Albrechtová The number of chloroplasts per cell was calculated as the ratio of the chloroplast profile number per needle area to the cell profile number per needle area, while the needle area was estimated previously by the point counting method (Weibel, 1979). The spruce needle volume was estimated by Cavalieri principle (Gundersen and Jensen, 1987): the mean of the areas of cross-sections was multiplied by the length of the needle. Sari I Koffler Wheat chloroplast volume was underestimated by 61% in mesophyll cells and 45% in bundle sheath cells from 2D micrographs, whereas chickpea mesophyll chloroplast volume was underestimated by 60% using simple geometrical models. Wazuddin . That's why the top of the leaf is darker than the bottom of the leaf. Palisade cells contain the largest number of chloroplasts per cell, which makes them the primary site of photosynthesis in the leaves of those plants that contain them, converting the in light to the chemical energy of carbohydrates. L TG Dinkins Schrader Panneerselvam Matsum. J Because of their shape (elongated and cylindrical) palisade cells contain many chloroplasts Palisade cells contain 70 percent of all chloroplasts. Crumpton-Taylor M, Grandison S, Png KM, Bushby AJ, Smith AM. * To whom correspondence should be addressed. Methods based on these principles were then improved (Possingham and Smith, 1972), and modified protocols have been widely used, e.g. GL In general, plant mesophyll cells contain a large central vacuole and, in vivo, chloroplasts are usually located in the peripheral cytoplasm, close to the cell wall. 19. The vascular tissue of leaves is comparable in many respects to that of stems with the conspicuous exception that in leaves there is great variation in the size of the vascular bundles. Control of starch granule numbers in Arabidopsis chloroplasts. . MX M within a substack of six optical sections 2 μm apart, the size of the sampling frame was adjusted to cover the whole cross-section area. which is different from the desired value by the ratio of the height of chloroplasts to the height of mesophyll cells: The chloroplasts are much smaller than mesophyll cells (chloroplast mean height is approximately 4 μm, while the cell mean height is approximately 40–60 μm); therefore, the theoretically expected difference is high, also of one order of magnitude. Therefore, we are aware that our 3D models of mesophyll cells (Fig. Z In mesophyll cells, chloroplasts are usually located next to the cytoplasmic membrane adjacent to intercellular spaces to decrease the resistance to CO2 diffusion (Terashima et al., 2011). 2B), as proved in a histochemical study by Soukupová et al. The palisade mesophyll. Takano Reference. Organism. should be estimated with a small error, , because it is not possible to divide by zero, and with an error of about (Marsaglia, 2006). Needles collected from Norway spruce trees were stored frozen before processing; freezing of needles does not influence various geometrical parameters of mesophyll (Lhotáková et al., 2008). (I) 2D sections through the model cell shown in (F) and (H). Chloroplasts are cell organelles where photosynthesis takes place. Simon 5F, H, I) was constructed such that it contained the mean number of chloroplasts obtained in our study. Sueoka Light absorption happens in the palisade mesophyll. The spongy mesophyll consists of air spaces that aid in the diffusion of gases. Leech N Zhu The disector probe is a 3D block. Please check for further notifications by email. It was found that some cells might have been pulled out of the specimen during cutting (Lhotáková et al., 2008), and this is why the disector probe was placed in the middle of a stack. Systematic uniform random (SUR) sampling of positions of cross-sections along the needle. Hanba For example, the number of chloroplasts per pair of stomatal guard cells in epidermal peels varies between 10 and 20 (Mochizuki and Sueoka, 1955; Frandsen, 1968; Nicholson, 1981; Qin and Rotino, 1995; Sari et al., 1999) and the mesophyll cells are obviously larger than guard cells. Zeeman Ramirez RM Molin (E) Estimation of needle cross-sectional area by a point counting method using the Point Grid module in Ellipse software (F) Two frames showing the subsequent acquisition of series for counting mesophyll cells. J . Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Science, Department of Experimental Plant Biology. R In each position, 20 µm thick stacks comprising 41 serial optical sections 0.5 µm apart were acquired using a plan apochromatic 63× water-immersion objective (NA 1.2) with zoom 2× and resolution 512×512 pixels (119×119 µm) (Fig. LS We concluded that maceration methods were unsuccessful due to lignification of mesophyll cell walls detected histochemically (Fig. The importance of using a proper method for counting/sampling chloroplasts is obvious, because incorrect approaches can lead to serious bias in the chloroplast number estimation.
